The Life Science Department offers a variety of courses to satisfy the needs of MCC students.

Most of our courses satisfy natural science requirements for various degrees here and at other institutions and are easily transferred.

Several courses prepare students for prehealth professional programs or the revolutionary, new field of biotechnology.

Mesa Community College was the first community college in the state of Arizona to offer an Associate in Applied Science (AAS) degree and Certificate of Completion in Biotechnology.

And finally, some of our courses are designed for biology majors who are planning to transfer to a four-year institution.

Majors Courses

For students looking to major in biology and transfer to a four year university, major in a prehealth professional program, or study Biotechnology

Non-majors Courses

For students looking for individual biology courses to fulfill their laboratory science requirements or for personal growth and interest.
